The mobile access cart is designed to provide drivers and operators with a flexible and safe access on to tankers of varying heights, either to sample or load product.
Constructed in aluminium, these mobile platforms can be moved around a loading bay easily by one person or longer distances with a tractor. Wheels then run parallel to tanker for areas where space is limited.
It consists of an aluminium flat-step extension ladder with open serrated metal plank steps giving an un-extended height 3m under platform up to an extended height of 5m under platform.
The large (1.6m wide X 2.14m long X 1m deep) cage is attached to a 0.46m wide X 0.725m long platform at the top of the ladder. The cage has a 0.4m walk surface on the inboard side.
To provide easy mobility the access cart is fitted with 0.4m foam-filled wheels. Levelling jacks at each corner provide a stable and firm base for safe ladder extension. The ladder is extended and retracted using a simple hand winch operation and the cart is easily moved around site using a steering handle with tow bar.
